Get Involved on Campus.

Interested in being a student leader on campus? The Student Government Association (SGA) will be recruiting representatives and executive officer elections will be the first week of classes. Perhaps planning activities and events is more your style. Become a member of the Student Activities Council (SAC)! SAC assists the Coordinator of Student Activities in planning everything from live trivia and movie nights to bigger events such as concerts, ski trips, and whatever new ideas SAC generates! If you have a specific interest area think about joining a Student Organization. Currently at CMC Leadville there is a running club, Outdoor Pursuits, and the honors society Phi Theta Kappa. Interested in something else? Start a new club! We can help you get started.

For more information on how to get involved on campus please contact the Coordinator of Student Life. Jared Leifeld 719-486-4291 jleifeld@coloradomtn.edu
